guys as always for being open-minded to other kinds of sponsorships that aren’t necessarily skincare but also reflect my other interests joey all right joey don’t let me down you got this you’re a smart girl hi i’m joey king and she’s so pretty i’m gonna walk through my skincare beauty routine and like you know my everyday makeup look first what i do is your skin is beautiful wow exfoliating cleanser like a gel cleanser i wash my face with like water every day this is just like a peeling gel exfoliant so i’m gonna like oh and you’re supposed to do it on dry skin which is kind of funny and this is really awesome because i have a super like dry skin only on my nose so i use this interesting it’s crazy you can kind of like it’s kind of gross you can like see the dead skin like coming off from your face on your hands okay so i washed my face i mean okay we’re a little bit off to a rough start so that is a peeling gel from peter thomas roth i’m familiar with that product i’ve used it before the way that it works is that it’s a formula that you spread across your skin and it’s basically a manual exfoliant it’s similar to the physical fix following it but it’s not quite as rough as like a physical scrub and you rub it across your skin and it creates this experience i’ll call it that makes it look like you’re rubbing up dead skin cells it’s super satisfying because after you rub it you’re like oh my god look at all the dead skin cells on my hand here’s the thing about peeling gels while yes they do have some chemical exfoliants that can be beneficial for the skin most of the time and the majority of the dead skin cells that you see on your hand are actually just the formula peeling up and balling up together in little pieces that makes it look like dead skin it’s really unfortunate because the first time i used one of those products i was like oh my god this is amazing i love it i totally want to make this my regular exfoliant but once i figured that out i realized it was kind of more of a gimmick than an actual legitimate exfoliant at least compared to the exfoliants that i really like if i remember right does have some fragrant essential oils it’s not too problematic because you do rinse it off pretty immediately afterwards sometimes people can have sensitivity and reactions to those because they do usually include like a high concentration of some exfoliating ingredients overall i’ll say i don’t necessarily think it’s bad i just don’t think it’s accurate marketing the main concern i have about this is that that’s not a cleanser it’s an exfoliant it’s definitely not a cleanser it’s a peeling gel she said that she usually washes her face with water every day now for a morning skincare routine that’s actually not bad i think for people who have really dry skin it’s beneficial to only wash your face once a day because washing your face can be really overly stripping and can create a lot more problems and when you wake up in the morning you’re usually just removing the skincare that you applied from the night before it’s not like removing makeup and all the dirt and a sweat cumulative throughout the day rinsing your face with water washing it with water in the morning is totally fine but i hope she’s not using that product every day because not only is it not a cleanser but it’s also not good to be exfoliating your skin every single day good to do it like a maximum of three to four times a week to make sure you’re giving your skin a break for the proper recovery so that you’re not damaging your moisture barrier i like where she’s going with the alternative exfoliation i love that it’s not a scrub and i think it’s great that she’s washing with water i just yeah i hope she’s not using that too often because that could also lead to over exfoliation wow sorry i’m really blabbing on there’s just a lot of variables okay a lot of sensitivities can happen which is why you just want to be careful i feel like i’m moving my hands so much act straight hiram go play off and now it’s all okay be careful nice the skin care gods were upon me because my eyes were not super puffy when i woke up but most days my eyes are very puffy when i wake up same thing super puffy so i use these deep puffing eye patches so that when i go to greet my family in the morning in the kitchen i don’t scare them so i put these on and they’re really oh my god our eyes are so my mom would always have us when we were kids like before we went to school and stuff she would always make sure we like washed our faces with water in the morning and put sunscreen on before we left so that was good for you mom oh my god that’s amazing so important to me oh my god yes that makes me so happy to hear oh my god a young celebrity who prioritizes sunscreen honestly good for that mom it is not common for me to find mothers that actually like prioritize their kids using sunscreen and that makes sense why her skin is so beautiful it’s probably all that sunscreen what she’s using right now i believe are the peter thomas roth cucumber under eye patches now if you have watched videos on my channel before you will know that my favorite face mask of all time is the peter thomas roth cucumber gel mask oh my god it is just incredible it is the only thing that will save my skin no matter what situation i’m in feels so good it lasts forever it’s just one of the best products i’ve ever used i think i featured it in two different best of videos and those are the eye patches now they’re definitely more of a luxury experience because they’re one use and i’m not totally mad at them because they are hydrogel so they’re not creating like waste like cotton rounds or something like that they break down very easily i personally haven’t seen like incredible results from them but i do think they’re like a cool innovative product that helps to reduce the puffiness on the eye area and it does have the benefits of the cucumber gel mask that i love let me look at the ingredient list real quick they’re also a little expensive it’s 52 for 60 pads so you know a little pricey but not like horrific okay yeah so the ingredients there’s a lot of soothing plant extracts there’s green tea there’s niacinamide oh i’d love to see that allen towen castor seed oil oh the only thing i don’t like about them is that they are formulated with fragrance i don’t even know if the mask is necessarily formulated with fragrance it’s not too big of a deal if it is because it is a mask but i don’t remember it smelling well regardless you guys know my stance on fragrance i feel like it’s not necessary to a formula it can be overly irritating especially on the under eye area that’s the most sensitive part of the face and i really don’t like it when companies you know create soothing for sensitive skin products and also formulate them with fragrance it’s like an oxymoron why would you do that you’re creating the problem that you’re supposedly trying to avoid but speaking from personal experience i don’t remember fragrance in this formula however you know there are a bunch of good ingredients and i think so long as she were to like rinse it off afterwards i don’t necessarily see a problem i think i’m more so worried about leaving it on for a long time and that fragrance causing potential sensitivity you know what my solution to under eye puffiness is though if you haven’t watched my harper’s bizarre skincare routine i’ll link it down below it was a super fun time still kind of feels surreal but i use cooling globes that i got from sephora they are awesome they work so well to de-puff the under eye area there’s no product and the liquid inside helps to make sure that the globe itself doesn’t have a lot of condensation so it doesn’t feel like you’re dragging it against your skin like the way water can grip dry skin they’re also relatively affordable so that’s what i like doing and i can use it alongside an eye cream or a face cream to get essentially that same effect i’ll have them linked down below alongside the other products that i recommend in this video if you do like shopping any of them feel free to use those links because i do make a small commission that helps to support me and my channel they’re just there to make your life easier no pressure whatsoever okay so i’m gonna take these off now i feel like it’s been a decent amount of time okay so next what i do to like clean my skin just an extra oh no witch hazel so i just use a little bit of this a little bit of this one joey i think the hardest thing for my skin is when i like step on a new set and they start using products on me that i’m not used to my skin goes through a lot of stuff so ultimately she’s a tough she’s a tough cookie and i don’t think that’s good so i put on i’m not a fan of that product or that strategy um if you’re familiar with my stance on witch hazel i just i don’t think it’s really that great of a product particularly that type of witch hazel if it’s formulated in another product at a lower percentage it’s not a huge deal to me but straight witch hazel kind of annoys me because it’s an astringent it’s formulated with some level of alcohol and what in a strange it does is help to clear all the excess heat and oil off of your face but it can be overly drying and overly stripping which can lead to sensitivity and inflammation and while it can be effective for people who have crazy oily skin even then i still feel like there’s better ingredients like niacinamide which helps to control sebum production within the skin and has so many other benefits and reduces redness and sensitivity as opposed to witch hazel which can create sensitivity and skin dehydration i’m particularly concerned about her using that product because she mentioned that she has dry skin that she only cleanses her face with water now if her skin is truly that dry and she only cleanses with water the last thing she needs to be putting on her face is witch hazel because that’s just gonna strip her skin even more and she may have you know her witch hazel is really good because it’s super popular on twitter and on social media people are always recommending it i don’t know why y’all need to stop i don’t know i’m not a fan and also not after that peeling gel chemical exfoliant that is a recipe for skin irritation i’d say for her it’d be better if she used like a hydrating essence or even better like an exfoliating essence for example the sun by me aha bha pha toner would be awesome because it’s formulated with two percent niacinamide so that’s going to help to reduce any excess oiliness but not overly strip her skin and also has exfoliating ingredients like polyhydroxy acids which are great particularly for people with dry skin and sensitive skin they’re gonna help to get rid of those dead skin cells without overly sensitizing the face like some chemical exfoliants a product like this for example would be a great way of kind of getting her exfoliation and her oil control toner step out of the way like two in one definitely in my opinion a lot better than witch hazel i put on eye cream every day i use kiehl’s creamy eye treatment with avocado and what i do is and this is like my grandma and my mom always taught me this when you’re applying eye cream you just dab it on you just do a little dab nothing more i like things and have like symmetry so if i do it to the bottom i like to do it to the top after i do my okay so i’m familiar with that eye cream i’ve used it before i’ll be honest i hate it and not so much from a formulation standpoint like i feel like that’s one of the products from kiehl’s that i actually don’t mind if you watch my truth about kiehl’s video i go into detail about the formula and what i like about it i think the formula isn’t bad the one thing i don’t like about the eye cream is that it’s so thick th icc unfortunately not the good type of thick it is like so hard to get seeped into your under eye area and for me personally i had to pull and tug and i know people say that you’re like supposed to warm it up in your fingers before applying it to your under eye area but even when i did that i still had to like tug a lot on the under eye area and when you apply an eye cream the last thing you want to be doing is like really irritating that area by pulling it because that’s just going to increase inflammation and sensitivity for my personal eye creams are more like eye gels or just things that are able to be you know really smoothly applied and soak into the skin relatively quickly and that eye cream while hydrating is just oh my god it’s like too much really struggled to work it into my skin and i’m honestly surprised that she was able to you know dab it into her skin so effortlessly because it’s a full-blown job for me but you know hey if it works for her that’s great it’s a very hydrating rich formula eye cream i use this it is clinical reparative moisture oh this like two pumps i always put moisture it looks so fancy on my face but i always always put it on my neck too yay i moisturize everything good good so that okay i’m not familiar with the ingredient list but i do recognize the brand is clinical emulsion if you are familiar with the difference between emulsion and a moisturizer emulsion is typically like a more lightweight fluid type of formula so it’s optimal for people who have more like oily skin i would say but you do want to be careful about certain emotions because not all of them have the necessary ingredients to prevent trans epidermal water loss the process by which we lose water through our skin the function of a moisturizer is to make sure that there’s a protective seal and with some emulsions i’ve seen it’s more so like a thicker toner than it is a moisturizer so you do want to be careful of that but a lot of emulsions are really good oh wow this is definitely fancy looking at the page for this product i’m like wow oh my god they also don’t have the ingredient list on their website i love that i love that so much okay wow so the second ingredient is sodium hyaline rate so that’s a concentrated form of hyaluronic acid the second ingredient wow how much hyaluronic acid is in this hyaluronic acid is one of those ingredients that’s great but it’s also one of those ingredients that’s not necessarily good if it’s at the top of an ingredient list because you know it works by pulling moisture from the environment into your skin but if you happen to be in a dry environment or it’s not very humid where you live it can actually pull water from your skin and dehydrate your skin even more so you want to be careful about like the concentrations of hyaluronic acid that you’re using i’m going to give this formula the benefit of the doubt and say that you know they’re using just a small concentration of all of their ingredients has glycerin it has squalene caprylic triglyceride beet root extract all amazing ingredients good hydrating agents and antioxidants while it has yeast it has amino acids it has a peptide complex it has panthenol phospholipids urea wow this ingredient list is so good oh and it’s fragrance free oh my god i want this product wow how much is it oh okay it’s 95 that’s you know that it’s not the worst it’s not the worst thing in the world but that is a little expensive but you know looking at this ingredient list i am really impressed it has a very well-rounded antioxidant heavy soothing anti-aging focused ingredient list joey has a good product wow look at that you find something new every day i use mario badescu skincare facial spray this smells so good i feel like i’m at a spa whenever i do it i just take a moment to myself oh my goodness after i get she’s so funny her routine is so back and forth i’ll be like oh this is a great product it looks really good and then i’m like oh joey what are you doing i don’t like that product just be honest i’m not a fan of mario badescu if you want to know why i feel free to go watch my truth about mario badescu video those sprays are essentially just fragranced water they offer pretty much no benefits for the skin and are only increasing the risk of fragrance irritation as you use them on your face honestly they’d be better used as a perfume and i will never in my life understand how they managed to get so popular i truly do not understand because when i’ve used those myths before in the past yes i’ve sinned and i’ve been forgiven they left my skin so sticky like really sticky icky gross i just i hated how it felt so i scratch my head every time i see people like love the mario badescu sprays it just i don’t know it doesn’t make sense to me after i guess she doesn’t apply very much clear and prepped and moisturized and stuff i add a little bit of this serum it’s self tan drops tanologists i want to feel okay tone tan fit and ready just careful about the dropper that’s my golden retriever just whining and then i just rubble really well okay so that’s a brand that i think recently was adopted by target or target started selling i don’t know how it works i’m really intrigued partially because the packaging is really pretty but i haven’t looked at the ingredient list yet i am trying to like find tanning options because my ass is tired of being pale i’m being made fun of for it all the time i just want to be beautiful but it does look intriguing usually people will not apply it on its own and rather like mix it in with a moisturizer or a serum or something like that but i mean i guess if it’s working for her that’s great my only recommendation is to not touch the dropper to the face because bacteria can transfer onto the dropper and then when you put it back in the formula it can make the formula go bad quickly mold can grow different problems that you just want to avoid all together so now i’m ready for some makeup i always start with my eyes because if i get like powder on my face from my waist wait a second swipe it off before wait wait wait so how i prep my eye where’s the sunscreen wait i thought you said you applied sunscreen every day oh i was so proud of her because she was talking about the most important step of the skincare routine and then she left me hanging where’s the spf joey maybe the sunscreen is in her makeup i’m guessing i’m skipping forward to see you my favorite foundation to use is it cosmetics this is the cc plus illumination uh spf 50.
that’s the most important part she uses a tinted moisturizer or foundation essentially with sunscreen in it oh this is one of my concerns okay so let’s delve into this topic because i don’t know if i’ve talked about this on my channel before a lot of people feel that they don’t need to apply sunscreen with their skincare routine because their tinted moisturizer or foundation has sunscreen in it now here’s the issue i’m constantly always recommending people to use a separate sunscreen not even a moisturizer with a sunscreen in it just a sunscreen the reason why is that you need to apply a lot of sunscreen to your face every single day to get the adequate amount of protection that you need usually a quarter size amount is what i do and what i recommend to other people you want to use a lot of sunscreen because it’s the most important part of your skincare routine even if you’re doing every other step and you don’t use enough sunscreen that everything else is not worth it because you’re still going to see skin damage that’s increasing aging dark spots dryness and other problems now i know it seems like you’re getting adequate protection when you use say an spf 50 tinted moisturizer but here’s the reality the amount of sunscreen in those formulas is very small and in order to get the full spectrum the spf 50 worth of protection you actually need to use like a tablespoon worth of that foundation there’s a lady who i believe use the it cosmetics tinted moisturizer to illustrate how much you need to use to get the protection factor that it has on the bottle and her face is caked to the gods just thick all over and in reality most people who use that tinted moisturizer are going to be using very little you’re actually getting like maybe an spf of five at most and that’s also why i don’t recommend moisturizers with sunscreens because a lot of people don’t use very much moisturizer and because a sunscreen only makes up a small part of that formula you’re getting a lot less protection than what you actually need and when it comes to skincare routines sunscreen is just one of those non-negotiable things you know you don’t need a toner you don’t need an eye cream you don’t necessarily need a treatment but you absolutely need sunscreen it’s the most important part so with that in mind joey let me recommend you some sunscreens that you can use that you know feel like nothing on your skin that work great under makeup but give you enough protection that you absolutely need one of my favorites is the dear claire soft uvari essence this one is such a lightweight gel and it’s an spf 50 so you’re getting the highest protection possible i can apply like four layers of this easy and it feels like nothing on my skin so lightweight here it’s korean skincare formula so it’s far superior to the usa formulas that we have here and no white cast whatsoever also joey since you have dry skin the crave beauty beet shelled is also awesome great sunscreen spf 50.
very similar to the dear claire’s one but it leaves your skin a little bit glowy and still no white cast whatsoever or since you do like the tanned look one of my favorite mineral sunscreens is the weightless liquid mineral spf 30 from first aid beauty this one adds such like a nice overall tint to the face it’s like an extreme sheer tinted moisturizer kind of mattifies the skin so you don’t look overly oily and you can find it at any sephora anywhere love love love this one so there you have it three sunscreen recommendations you have no excuse bitch protect that beautiful face um thoughts feelings concerns shadiness i thought her routine was not bad um but it’s definitely not the best that i’ve seen i would have preferred her to not use appealing gel at least as a cleanser every single day if she uses it you know once a week that’s totally fine just hope she’s not using it as a consistent cleanser i love the moisturizer that she used and i think the eye cream is totally fine to use i think they’re both definitely good products i would have preferred her not use witch hazel so that she’s not stripping her skin and going with like a nice cinnamide product instead i think the eye patches are fine as long as she’s not sensitive to fragrance but be aware of that and to make sure to rinse it off afterwards and then sunscreen girl the absolute must but you know i do like the mindfulness that she does have with her routine everything seems to serve a very specific purpose and i’m so glad to hear that she’s been wearing sunscreen for a long time i really hope that she continues to do so let me know in the comment section down below i want to hear all of your thoughts and all of your opinions joey i love you so much if you are watching this you made my whole month thank you again to audible for sponsoring this video and if you want to get your first audio book for free text hiram to 500 500 or go to audible.
